Welcome to our new WebSite!

Posted by: sjacobsohn

Dear Music Lovers and Dear Friends of Shriver Hall Concert Series,

Welcome to our brand new website! It's our vision and hope that this site will be a resource to you and a place for you to visit and revisit often to learn about upcoming concerts, our artists, programs, music, and the Series in general.

The site is now complete with detailed program information and downloadable program notes, a music glossary, a media center, in-depth information on artists and much, much more! Over the next few weeks we'll also be adding more features including an archive of the Series' history spanning our 46 years from the opening concerts in 1966.

Of course you can still purchase subscriptions, individual-concert tickets, make reservations, and learn about the many ways you can support the music you love and help the Series secure a bright and healthy future.

We'd like to recognize the generous support of the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund and the Baltimore Community Foundation for making this new site possible and our dear friends at B Creative Group ( for turning our vision into the site you experience here.

We hope you'll leave lots of comments telling us how performances move you and providing us with constructive feedback to make both this website and the concert experience better for you.

We look forward to seeing and hearing from you soon!

Stephen Jacobsohn, Executive Director

Bring a Friend

Posted by: sjacobsohn

As our Season gets started, we’d like to thank those of you who subscribe and purchase individual-concert tickets to the Series. Great artists need great audiences, and we certainly have the best! You are one of the main reasons we are able to attract artists like Christian Tetzlaff, Steven Isserlis, Richard Goode, and the Takacs Quartet (to name a few) year after year. Indeed the Shriver audience is well known locally and abroad as one of the most knowledgeable and attentive - always actively contributing to each performance by bringing positive energy and genuine interest in the repertoire and performers.

At the same time these are tough days for music organizations seeking to attract new audiences. Along with the role the current economic turmoil plays, the sheer number of entertainment options makes getting new people in the door a real challenge, and marketing costs are always rising.

Friends - you are our best advocates, and strongest allies. Every time you bring a friend to a concert, recommend the Series to associates, or forward our emails, brochures, facebook page, and website to your constituents, you are helping preserve the Series and the longevity of the music you love. We urge you to help the Series maintain a bright future by doing all of the above. Our staff will work with you to ensure good seating arrangements if you’d like to share the SHCS experience with a friend and discounts may apply. Thank you for your continued loyalty and support!

SLSQ Opens 46th Season

Posted by: sjacobsohn

We hope you’ve had a great summer filled with sunny days and soaring melodies. It’s hard to believe the opening concert of our 46th Season is almost upon us. And what a great way to start - our longtime friends, and an incredible ensemble, the St. Lawrence String Quartet open the Season with the type of compelling program you’ve come to expect at Shriver Hall. Along with Haydn’s exuberant Quartet No. 57, Op. 74, No. 1, and Dvorak’s richly colorful Quartet in A-flat Major, Op. 105, SLSQ will play a preview of a new work in progress by the hugely popular and widely acclaimed Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov. Co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall and Stanford Lively Arts Stanford University, this work will further a long and accomplished collaboration between composer and artist that’s resulted in the twice-Grammy-nominated SLSQ recording of Golijov’s Yiddishbuk. The opportunity to hear world-class artists give the preview of a work in progress by one of today’s most important living composers should not be missed – just imagine being witness to the Schuppanzigh Quartet playing one of Beethoven’s quartets for the [...]
